Auditorium
Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach, 411 Clematis Street

Join Baba Moussa and the Ballet Brika West African Dance Theater for an energetic performance of traditional West African drumming, dance, songs and chants.  Dancing in West Africa is a form of social interaction, where the whole tribe comes together, and different dances are performed for different occasions. The drummer and dancer are interconnected: the drum patterns cue the dancers and trigger moves, while the dancer also challenges and directs the drummer who translates the dancer’s moves into rhythms.  For more information, visit wpbcitylibrary.org or call 561-868-7701.
